Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredRunny noses are not always caused by allergies. In this video, Dr. Oz discusses a device that can stop runny noses.
For children and adults, over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers, decongestants and saline nasal sprays may help relieve some symptoms of viral infections. Remember, always use over-the-counter products as directed. Many over-the-counter products are not recommended for children younger than certain ages.
For a runny nose, use a decongestant or saline nasal spray to help relieve nasal symptoms (check what is safe to give your child).
